    Bah, there's an illusion I didn't want shattered. :)

    Fair enough. Sounds like conquest probably wouldn't be much fun.

    So, having gotten my first culture win (Ethiopia, Prince, Standard) by a comparatively narrow margin, I'm thinking it's time to bump things up a bit. Does simply increasing the map size (and thus the...

    Memorization isn't really a thing with RtS, especially in light of the fact that the level changes daily. I tend to deliberately take different paths, too, if I'm playing a lot in a single day. It's...

    Just a quick note to say that Race the Sun is fantastic. It's a dynamically generated endless runner with a great sense of speed and fluidity of motion, a rewarding progression system, and some...

    Just eked out a culture victory in Civ 5 on prince with Ethiopia. The only real obstacle was Byzantium, Theodora was pumping out some serious culture, but the late tech bonuses pushed things along...

    You make an excellent case for this, but man, whenever I'm perusing the civ list for what to play next I always see Sweden's ability and wince at the idea of giving away great people.

    Yup, I very deliberately went down the piety track specifically to get that. It's pretty great, I've managed a much more efficient mid-game tourism push than I'd have thought possible. It's 1900 and...

    About 60% of the way through a Civ 5 game as Ethiopia, trying for my first culture victory and leaning heavily on faith as a tool and weapon. It's a lot of fun, wildly different than my previous...

    I'm not sure I understand how faith fits into the overall strategy of the game, still. It's the one piece that I'm still unclear on, really. I look at the piety social track, for example, and can't...

    If a friendly mod wanted to pull this stuff out and throw it in a new thread, or into the old Civ 5 thread, I wouldn't object.

    Thanks again. Would the Shoshone work similarly to Ethiopia for this?

    Also, while I've got you talking Civs, what do you think of Polynesia? They seem positively game-breaking at first glance.
